Members of the 1One Nation Carnival concierge outfit are eager to present their concept on August 24th at the Trinidad Hilton Hotel. 

An economic boost for Trinidad and Tobago; this is the overall anticipation of a new carnival band that is setting itself apart from the dynamic of all other bands in the carnival business. 1One Nation Carnival’s concierge style, intimate offering ahead of Carnival 2020, launches at the Hilton Hotel in Trinidad, on August 24th. Its variables are unique when it comes to creating an experience for tourists in particular. That unique offering is what will ultimately be the cash-in for nationals of Trinidad and Tobago and the country as a whole. 

With several major mas bands already having launched their 2020 offerings, the 1One Nation Carnival team is excited to reveal their Tropical Wonderland theme- a concept that will only be available to a maximum of 200 carnival enthusiasts from around the world. “We’ll be partnering with a number of different carnival and tourism stakeholders,” says 1One Nation’s Sejoux Nelson. He says the return on investment for these partners will be substantial, and will essentially be a full scale marketing effort on their end to ensure that these investors get value for their buck. The team is also making major social media inroads, partnering with top tiered social influencers for the long haul. “In this technological age, there’s so much that can be done online to entice folks around the world. With our focus being the foreign market in particular, the use of social influencers who are able to generate that awareness to their global following, is essential,” said Nelson. 

The August 24th launch will deliver Caribbean mas with an unmistakable couture element from start to finish. “We’re ensuring that all aspects of the 1One Nation brand receive the attention deserved. The international market is one that expects value for their money and they will certainly receive that,” said Nelson. The returns for the people of Trinidad and Tobago and the economy as a whole, lies in the participants’ arrival and stay on the twin island. “We believe that more efforts like this, to prompt visitors with foreign exchange, to visit these parts, partake in the festival and certainly spend while here, is equated to financial gains for the country and its people,” said Nelson, adding that from every angle one may view a concierge service carnival experience from, the returns are there to be seen. 

Some 20 costumes will be available for the small band’s masqueraders to choose from, Nelson explaining that there will be 4 sections with each section offering masqueraders a choice of 5 costumes. “This is something that’s never really been done before. We think its time more options were made available for people based on varying factors, such as body type, age and other variables. Widening the demographic is ultimately a win-win situation for us and the masqueraders themselves,” said Nelson. 
 Details on the upcoming band launch are available on the 1One Nation Carnival Instagram and Facebook pages.

Carnival has officially been launched at sea. In true Trinbagonian style, a Friday morning breakfast Boatride hosted by 96.1WEFM radio personalities, Jaiga, R’odey, Nicki Crosby and Raw Fusion, saw the soca stars out in full force aboard the Harbour Master in West Trinidad.

As per usual, delayed sailing gave way for even more fun as fans of Soca showed no sign of disapproval, patiently waiting for the kick off of Runaway For Soca, a ride that marked its 5th year, in fine style. A good enough number aboard, and of course, the accompaniment of some of the best Soca artistes, the ride was equipped with all the right elements to make it intrinsically perfect.

Aboard, fans of soca couldn’t get enough! From vintage soca to hits of yester-year and today’s massive hits, DJs, which included the likes of Selector Pro, Chucky Ray Ban and Poison Sounds, kept the music flowing, showing carnival fetters that good vibes still exists. The event was billed as the introduction of the Soca stars to the season in T&T. Many in Trinidad to promote their new tracks, they seized the opportunity to be seen, heard and experienced at Runaway for Soca 5.

Sekon Sta, Nessa Preppy, Swappi, Patrice Roberts and even Trinidad Killa who was urged by organizers to sing his new Soca single, “Dyy Zess” rather than the controversial, “Gunman in She Hole,” performed for those aboard. Grenada’s Groovy Soca Monarch King, V’Ghn, International Soca Monarch King, Skinny Fabulous, Grenada’s Skinny Banton and Barbados’ Hypasounds were also aboard, delivering good vibes and sweet soca like only they could, but it would be popular DJ, Viking Ding Dong- the official DJ for Bunji Garlin and Fay Ann Lyons, who would steal much of the attention on Friday morning. His track, “Outside” was all the rave – the entertainer getting major approval from Soca lovers. Whether it was Dong’s easy going nature, his smile or the vibe of the song itself that made him steal the show, the fact that he made a huge impression is definitely something to note.

Turner Remembers God, Tells Fans to Believe in Prayer’s Power.

Not very long ago, Turner, a young, unique sounding artist from Morvant, Trinidad inhaled and released his heart. He initially gave Soca music lovers songs like, “She Bad” and “Holding On.” In 2019, Turner lost his young daughter. News of the child’s sudden passing pierced the hearts of many of his followers. For him, it would undoubtedly be a life altering experience.

Online social media posts over the past few months have shown Turner’s spiritual growth. He has prayed, expressed himself and thanked God for his blessings even amid the pain of loss. In one social media post today, the young entertainer explained that he was once homeless. Added to his revelation some time before that his father had died, having contracted HIV/AIDS, Turner’s reality certainly proved tough.

Trevon Turner

In the aftermath of his daughter’s passing, and ahead of Carnival 2020, Turner released a very untraditional soca track. Much like Kanye West had done by releasing “Jesus Walks” in the rap and Hip Hop culture, Trevon Turner released, “Thank Him” in the often sexually charged, Soca culture. Whether the song would be played and listened to, would be up to the DJs and radio personalities.


Undoubtedly awakened by the most recent circumstances of his life, Turner seems to be using his God given talent to promote God’s works. “One thing I know for sure is that Jah really answers our prayers and he listens to your prayers. I assure you that he ain’t bothered about your race, religion, hair or the color of your skin or even if you are rich or poor,” he wrote in a social media post.

Here’s a look at what he had to say about his life and how God has answered his prayers.
